Williams: Could start for visitors

Team news for Tuesday night's League Two clash between Dagenham and Redbridge and Plymouth Argyle at Victoria Road.

Dagenham will name an unchanged team as they prepare to face the Pilgrims.

Manager John Still was impressed with his team's performance at Cheltenham, despite losing 2-0 at Whaddon Road, and with no new injury concerns or suspensions, will keep faith with his starting XI.

Midfielders Kevin Maher and Matthew Saunders remain sidelined with their injuries.

Maher has undergone minor surgery on his foot injury which will keep him out of the team for a further two weeks.

Saunders will also be missing for another fortnight with his ankle injury.

Defender Michael Spillane had been a doubt for the clash with the Robins, but he came through the game unscathed and will start for the Daggers against Carl Fletcher's side.

Meanwhile, Plymouth boss Carl Fletcher could reshuffle his defence ahead of their trip to Dagenham.

Fletcher slammed his side's defensive show after they slumped to a 2-0 defeat against Aldershot on the opening day.

Full-back Onismor Bhasera conceded a needless free-kick while skipper Darren Purse was punished for a woeful pass back and both player's positions are under pressure.

Utility-man Robbie Williams may come in at left-back in place of Bhasera but further changes could be made.

Summer signing Rhys Griffiths will continue to play no part having suffered a calf injury ahead of last week's Capital One Cup victory over Portsmouth and faces at least a fortnight on the sidelines.

Midfielder Jamie Lowry will miss out as he is expected to be sidelined until late October with an ankle ligament injury.
